The Worst Cooks In America: A Platform to Improve Your Cooking Skills

With a lot of reality shows going on air , one of them has actually caught my attention. “The Food Network’s Worst Cooks In America”.  I think the reason for its popularity is purely its  concept, where you will find the so-called “disasters” in the kitchen transform themselves into more than a competent cook using the guidance of some of the best chefs in US.

The first season of the reality show was aired in 2010, where 12 participants (or the recruits, as they put it in the show) took part in the cooking boot camp, which lasted for a period of 6 weeks. Anne Burrell and Beau MacMillan were the two mentors, who trained 6 contestants each. Rachel Coleman, Eddie Chang, Rebecca Hooper, Sophia Gettys, Kelly LoCascio and Hamed Hamad were the recruits of the Red Team mentored by Anne. Jennifer Cross, Jennifer Vecchio, Marque Hernandez, Susie Shoman, David Summey and Wilhelmina Josephine were mentored by Beau in the Blue Team. After 6 weeks of a hard fought contest, Rachel from Anne’s team was declared the winner, after she impressed the restaurant critics by making a wonderful 3-course meal.

For two consecutive seasons, recruits from Anne’s team have been winning The Food Network’s Worst Cooks In America and a prize money of USD 25,000. Who would be having the last laugh, as Anne’s 8 recruits would lock horns against Bobby Flay’s team to make it 3 out of 3 for the chef cum TV personality
